Bill of Right in Action
Fall 1999 (15:4)

Clash of Cultures and Law

This Bill of Rights in Action examines the clash between cultures and law. The first article explores attempts to rein in the Internet, whose culture has resisted outside controls. The second article looks at the first emperor of China and how he tried to impose a harsh legal code on his empire. The last article explores Spain's attempts to write laws for its empire in the New World.

This issue of the Bill of Rights in Action is made possibel by a generous grant from the W.M. Keck Foundation.
